Continental Airlines Website Reservation Error

Jump to last reply

I made a reservation on Continental website to travel to Israel from Chicago O'Hare with a connecting flight from Newark NJ and then on to Tel Aviv. What I chose was flight CO374 leaving Chicago at 11 AM arriving in Newark at 2:15 PM with a connecting flight on CO 84 from Newark, putting me in Tel Aviv at 9:25 AM which would allow me to use that day for business. When I received my confirmation itenarary 2 days later, it was completely wrong. They had me on the 11 AM flight out of Chicago but they put me on the 10:50 PM flight CO90, which put me in Tel Aviv at 4:15 PM. I called Continental to correct the error and was told it was a software glitch, but to change it I would have to pay $300 (change fee) I informed them that the error was their software. They aske me to call their IT department. I thought that they should do that internally, but I called anyway and was told it be 55 minutes of wait time for someone to answer. I called Continental to cancel my flight and now was told it will be $300 cancellation fee.
At that point I contacted my AMX and was told they will handle the issue. At that point I went to Priceline and got the correct travel times on Continental and I traveled on that ticket. Unfortunalty, AMX did not take care of it and Continental refused to acknowledge my cancellation so now I am stuck with paying AMX $1900.
If anyone can think of a way to get AMX or Continental to come to their senses please let me know.
